One of the responsibilities of the Cleveland Chapter should be to stay
connected and up to date on NFB charges, bills and other significant
actions.  Therefore, I am introducing Cleveland's Listserve.  I have
forwarded all emails to David Andrews who handles all of the listservs
across the United States to add your email for communication.


You can subscribe either by going to:


or by sending e-mail to:

nfboh-cleveland-request at nfbnet.org
<mailto:nfboh-cleveland-request at nfbnet.org>  and put the word subscribe on
the subject line.


However, as I stated above, I have submitted your email addresses.  If you
know of someone who is not receiving information from this communication,
contact me or Cheryl Fields, NFBOH-Cleveland Recording Secretary.


If there is a member who is new to our Chapter or has a new email, provide
them with the necessary links.  Cheryl Fields, NFBOH-Cleveland Recording
Secretary, will monitor the list serve.  Hence, this communication will be
only for NFB purposes to communicate between the Jernigan Institute, NFB of
Ohio and Cleveland.  Please do not provide the links to non-members.

But, if you think that the content should be shared to promote, enhance and
empower the affiliate, you can share information.


Again welcome!
